Beschreibung

Weiterentwickelt vom CURE, ist der LYNX ein äußerst aerodynamisches und vollwertiges XC-Raubtier. Seine raffinierte Einfachheit macht ihn schneller, leichter, eleganter und auch wettbewerbsfähig, während seine LTF/EN-C Zulassung eine solide Sicherheit bietet.

Der LYNX hat neue BGD Leichttragegurte aus 13mm Gurtband mit drei Ebenen und ein leistungsoptimiertes Beschleunigersystem. Mit einer neuen Edelrid Magix Pro 8000U Competitionbeleinung und dem neuen, verstärktem Skytex 32g/m² Leichttuch von Porcher Sports ist der Lynx an der Spitze des Spiels. Der LYNX ist listig, wendig und bringt Dich an die Spitze der Nahrungskette.

Konstruktionsmerkmale

Strong shark nose

An ultra aggressive shark nose optimises stability at all speeds. Not all sharks are created equal and BGD’s shark noses are very aggressive, maximising the effects of the technology.

Progressive stability

Progressive stability has been designed into all our gliders to help pilots feel turbulence and avoid it. This makes for safer and more comfortable flying.

Cord cut billow (CCB)

Cord Cut Billow technology has been developed to improve the form friction, glider stability and overall performance of our paragliders. Two seams run chord-wise across the top panels of the leading edge to accommodate the panel ballooning that happens when the wing is inflated. Up to five centimetres of excess material is created on the sides of an inflated flat panel bending over a wing profile. Cord Cut Billow technology absorbs the material with a 3D panel resulting in fewer ripples and improved rib profile shape and stability.

Optimised line layout

Over the years we have perfected our system of optimising the line layout of our wings. We use numerous equations, software, and the plain old guess-and-check method to build our line layouts. The result is simple: fewer lines making stronger, faster gliders.

Snap Locks

Snap Locks are lightweight, compact attachments that effortlessly connect the brakes to the risers. A small focused magnet inside the catch and an internal locking system hold the handle in place, releasing only if the handles are pulled down towards the pilot. This unique design feature means the handles don’t fall off while kiting, packing, or performing manoeuvres. The Snap Lock system solves many of the problems associated with press-studs and magnets.

Leading edge mini-ribs

Situated along the leading edge are reinforced mini-ribs, designed to help produce a rock-solid profile while on speed bar.

Eyes wide-open safety

Gliders that talk are safer. Safer gliders make pilots perform better. Better performing pilots fly further. Further flying pilots are happier pilots. Eyes Wide-open Safety produces happier pilots.

Maximised unsupported cells

Optimised unsupported cell groups are designed to match the span-wise load distribution influenced by the line layout. Coupled with a strong internal structure, the line layouts that create more span-wise tension can support more unsupported cells. While maintaining a homogenous wing, this helps to minimise line consumption reducing drag thus improving performance.

Post C-band

We have added a Post-C band running along the top surface which seamlessly moves down to the bottom surface at the tip, connecting directly to the last line cascade. Instead of putting heavy plastic rods above the C lines we use this band to counter the common flip-up ripple caused when applying a little brake. The problem with paragliders is when a little brake is applied the cupping of the trailing edge creates lift which often buckles the profile near the Cs. We have solved this problem with the Post-C Band, an eloquent, lightweight, clean and volume reducing solution.

Weight-optimised ribs

We have maintained the strength and rigidity of the ribs while removing unnecessary material. This means less weight for no increase in cost or reduction in strength of the wing. The hole positioning and size depends on the loads taken locally by the sail, and it is thanks to recent developments in our software that it is now possible to accurately calculate this.

Ziel

Es ist wildes Unterfangen, mehrere Tage abseits der Zivilisation zu fliegen; verschiebe Deine Grenzen, triff Deine eigenen Entscheidungen, tauche ein in die Natur und spiele mit den Elementen um lass Dich allein vom Wind durch die Landschaft begleiten. Egal, ob es sich um eine einsame Reise zur Selbstfindung handelt, oder die Reise von tausenden online beobachtet wird, der Lynx ist für abenteuerlustige Athleten genauso wie für erfahrene Piloten, die in die Natur rauskommen und den Nervenkitzel des Abenteuers aus erster Hand erleben möchten.


Notizen von Bruce

Bist Du der harte Pilot, der egal ob bei Regen oder Sonne auf dem Berg steht oder suchst Du Dir Deine Tage gezielt aus? Sind Deine Startplätze wie ein frisch gemähter Golfplatz oder eben wie die Oberfläche auf dem Mars? Die BGD LITE Kollektion wurde von Bruce speziell für Piloten entworfen, die bei wenig Gewicht eine hohe Leistung wünschen.

Das Konstruieren des leistungsstärksten Gleitschirms in der BGD LITE Kollektion war faszinierend, herausfordernd und letztlich auch lohnend, da die Verbesserungen ganz klar sind. Der LYNX war ursprünglich für die Red Bull X-Alps gedacht, hat sich aber schnell zu einem vielseitigerem Schirm entwickelt. Ich begann mit der Vorlage des CURE und überarbeitete diese fast von Grund auf, vereinfachte sie und fügte die neuesten Materialien hinzu. Die gesamte BGD LITE Kollektion folgt dieser Designphilosophie und bringt Dich daher zu mehr Leistung.
